Peer inside the traction engine, fire, the space station, windmill, a city, Venice, the Grand Canyon and more.
This illustrated book for children shows you how things work. Look inside the human body, explore the magic of Venice, and take a tour around a movie studio – and much more!
Part of a unique series, More Incredible Cross-sections is Stephen Biesty at the top of his game. In this updated edition with a refreshed, contemporary style, he gives readers an exploded view of 12 objects, places, landmarks, and modes of transport. But look closer! In every picture is an alien who has lost his way: can you find him?
As you pore over Stephen Biesty’s superbly detailed pages, you will also discover loads of awesome facts. Did you know that steam engines were notoriously difficult to stop, leading to frequent accidents? Or that people at an Antarctic research base rely on supplies from an aircraft’s parachute drops during winter?
